Paul Heyman (left) came out on WWE RAW and told the world former UFC champion Brock Lesnar was quitting WWE.
There was no Brock Lesnar on WWE Monday Night RAW as he "quit' the promotion in storyline, announced by Lesnar's friend and someone that has dabbled in MMA the past few years: Paul Heyman.
Lesnar was asked to be at the show, but instead sent his "legal representative" in Heyman, a longtime wrestling personality who has been one of the former UFC champion's closest friends since his early WWE days. After cutting a promo on the virtues of what Lesnar brought to the table, Heyman read a prepared statement from Lesnar where he quit the promotion.

Of course, he is signed for a year and will return in August for one of WWE's biggest pay-per-views of the year in Summer Slam, where he is expected to face Triple-H. He attacked HHH on last week's show, "breaking" his arm and setting up the angle.
